HOPE's Mobile Health Units
HOPE's Two Mobile Health Units
In 2014, HOPE inaugurated its first Mobile Health Unit with the cooperation of Asia Petroleum Limited. Due to the successful effort, another unit was set up in 2015. Each Mobile Health Unit is responsible for covering the same 10 villages every week. Doctors from Karachi staff these Mobile Health on a rotational basis. The doctors set up “clinics” in the houses of community volunteers and treat the underserved population, mainly women and children. Medicines and treatments are provided free of charge.
HOPE’s Mobile Health Unit vehicles are equipped with trackers, courtesy of APL. These units allow HOPE to keep track of what areas have been serviced and improve efficiency. Other services provided by the Mobile Health Units include:
Treating communicable diseases such as diarrhea, respiratory infections, vomiting, and noncommunicable diseases such as malnutrition
Basic medical services
Gynecologic and obstetric care
In 2022, a total of 72,384 patients were treated in both of HOPE’s Mobile Health Clinics. These included: 39,936 children, 17,472 men, and 14,976 women.
